Nice mixture of technology and art

If you visit the national museum of Bellas Artes, do not miss this nice flower just 100 yards away. It is a beautiful artefact mixing technology and art.

Visited this place whilst on a bike tour of Buenos Aires, a nice restful place. It's a huge steel sculpture in the middle of a park, that's it. Nothing else. Enjoy.

not far from Recoleta and the Art gallery, this large, mobile sculpture set in an artificial lake is worth a visit. It moves and follows the sun and open and closes its petals, just like a real flower.

The structure is a GIGANTIC stainless steel flower that opens and closes through the day. This THING is a good 30 ft. high, cost 6 million Euros to build and was donated to the city by some Italian. Many of the locals criticized the “thing” as it was installed during their economic turmoil where inflation rates were 400%. The flower... More

As I traveled through the city during various times of the day, I enjoyed seeing the movement of the sculpture throughout the day. very clever. I would love to have a smaller version in my yard.

We passed this piece of artwork and tool the obligatory picture. However this is meant to be mobile, i.e. opening and closing which was not working. Clever and worth a look

this is a pretty sculpture made of steel and aluminumand was a gift to the city by the Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano If you are lucky to be there at the right times the flower opens and closes again.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
